Exhibition Details

Burning Man, August 30 – September 6, is moving from playa to virtual Dusty Multiverse this year in response to COVID-19. Jen Lewin’s newest and largest work, Cosmos, was awarded a Black Rock City Honorarium to bring the mesmerizing sculpture to life and join The Mayan Warrior as a part of the largest live virtual art and music event in history. Free for all to join with RSVP at, the experience is easily accessible on iOS and Android phones as well as VR headsets.

Comprised of spiraling LED pathways, Cosmos is a traveling, interactive light installation that has been coded to sense and respond to impact, vibration and movement. Spanning 15,000 sq. ft., Cosmos is the largest sculpture ever to be commissioned from Lewin’s studio and has been engineered to perfectly process human interaction. As viewers walk, dance, and play across Cosmos, they are able to generate an infinite amount of changes to its colors and reflections. Lewin’s work allows for an unprecedented level of interactivity and transforms the way we interact with art and each other.

Cosmos is part of Lewin’s “Have Art Will Travel Program” which seeks to create dynamic, participatory, public art experiences worldwide.
